I think there are two legitimate questions I would ask here:
1) Why do I always put my hand to my hair during every OOTD photo "shoot" and
2) Why the hell am I wearing so many clothes in May....in Dubai?
In answering question two I have one word: rebellion. If you took notice of the weather in this place then you would only ever wear one wardrobe and your clothes would never change. You have to adopt a slight non-conformist attitude sometimes otherwise dressing gets boring when you have lived here for a few years.
Right now we are transitioning into summer and generally speaking at this time of year the tourists are at the beach and the residents are indoors, transporting themselves from one air conditioned environment to the next. I like to think that this gives us some flexibility in what to wear - so yeah...look at my lovely indoor outfit! :)
The jeans and jacket are both River Island and this is not a sponsored post - I repeat this is not sponsored. I happened to go in to River Island after getting my hair blown dry and went on a bit of a spree.
The jeans are slouchy and perfect for casual dressing. They are supposedly a new slim cut boyfriend which means that your arse doesn't look hideous in them but that they feel comfortable and sit on the right side of baggy. I like to pretend to be cool and pull them down so that the waist sits on my hips.
The jacket is something that I have seen done by many (expensive) brands. It's a light summer jacket - akin to wearing a cardigan - and the feature that appealed to me was the gentle, flowing waterfall line at the front. It's one of those magic throw it on pieces that I tried on in store and actually said "oh yes" out loud.
I did hesitate in buying it for a second but after bagging it I am SO pleased that I did succumb. It's so comfortable to wear but will look great with shorts and jeans.
Jacket: River Island - UK Link! US Link!
Jeans: River Island - UK Link! US Link! (FYI: I got the 8...I'd normally get a 10 in jeans but with these you can comfortably size down)
Tee: COS - best t-shirts ever and half the price of Wang. So there.
Bag: Michael Kors - Link! (currently on sale)
My nails right now are BarryM Rose Hip. Good God if ever there was a colour that I would buy it is this one. It's that white based baby pink that makes me salivate when I look at it.
Application is okay - you need a streaky as hell first coat and then a decent blob of a second coat - and I find that Barry M polishes generally come good in the end. This reminds me of Gelish's You're So Sweet You're Giving Me a Toothache (longest name ever) and I think the next time I hit the nail salon I will be opting for that for a more long lasting look.
See you soon!
